I once, when talking about a story that used the term "Touring Test", said "This story gave me a nerdgasm."

Nerdgasm I've heard before.  E.g., when Wil Wheaton did an intro for Mur's Geek Fu Action Grip.

"Most libraries carry 1-3 collections named Sudden Fiction published in the early '90s. Must have been on a booklist somewhere then."

I don't know if this is based on anything real, but I've always looked at Sudden Fiction as a brush closer to prose poetry than flash fiction is.

What about Zeph fiction?  As in zephyr?

Please no, I drove a Mercury Zephyr and it was probably one of the single worst cars I have ever driven.
